So... Yeah. It seems my pair of 290X's are pretty chilly lately. I'm folding so they are working away @ 100% load (give or take). I am concerned as I do not want them to fall ill and catch a cold.

Ambient air temp is about 17 - 18 and my GPU's are @ 36 and 41 atm. Celsius of course. Should I knit a sweater for my PC (wool ~ static electricity and all) or should I turn the heater back on and aim it at the PC?

lol, check your VRM temps :)

And take the chiller or cold plates out of your water loop.

Seriously? 41c at load?

LOL Nice little chuckle with my coffee this morning, TY Matty.

Nice temps though, you might want to put a sinutab in the res just to be sure they are okay....... ;)

Best I can get out of mine is around 54C full load under water. No sweater required here :)
